The Cottingley Fairies

(3) K-3 This story, translated from the Spanish, is a fictionalization of the early-twentieth-century incident when young cousins Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths took photos of (what they claimed were) fairies in the woods of Yorkshire, England. Fanciful multimedia illustrations catch the mood of the story, engagingly (and a bit unreliably) narrated by Frances. An endnote discusses the historical event.
